Do you really believe suffering should be alleviated? I think it is an
incredible motivator (I personally have always found that I work harder when
my back is against the wall). It is the ultimate object lesson.
I do think that regardless of the advances provided by the Singularity,
suffering will mutate and find us. If not physical then psychological.
